Winter sports and COVID-19 in general

Skiing and snowboarding take place outdoors and are therefore sports with little contact to others. As a result, the risk of infection is low and winter sports, in compliance with the corona measures, are perfectly possible!

Together with the Westendorf businesses and the Kitzbüheler Alpen tourist board, measures have been put in place to prevent infection. Below is an overview of these measures for winter 2021/22.

Roadmap Winter 2021/22

Currently in force: STEP 1 (since 15-09-2021)

The Austrian government has developed a step-by-step plan, on which several corona measures depend. The rules mentioned in the steps below apply in addition to the general corona measures.

On this page you can always find which step is currently applicable.

Step 1 (from 200 occupied IC beds):

  • The validity period of an Antigen test goes from 48 hours to 24 hours
  • FFP2 mask in all shops for persons who have not been vaccinated

Step 2 (from 300 occupied ICU beds):

  • Self-tests are no longer valid as a ticket in locations where the 3-G rule applies
  • The 2-G rule (vaccinated or cured) goes into effect for the night catering industry

Step 3 (from 400 occupied IC beds):

  • Antigen tests are no longer valid as admission tickets at locations where the 3-G rule applies
